Derek Chisora has slammed his former promoter Frank Warren, branding him a ‘dinosaur’ and telling him to ‘retire’.
The heavyweight contender worked with Warren for several years earlier in his career, including during his fights against Vitali Klitschko, David Haye and Tyson Fury (twice).

Now however, Chisora is a free agent who fights on Eddie Hearn’s shows – next against David Price on October 26 – though this hasn’t stopped his old representatives from making him offers in recent weeks.
Warren has claimed in recent interviews that he attempted to make Chisora vs Joe Joyce, only for the man now known as ‘WAR’ to rebuff his proposal and demand £5million.
When asked about this, Chisora replied: “Frank Warren needs to stop saying my name. If he carries on saying my name, I’m gonna be very upset with him.
“He needs to stop saying my name, he’s a dinosaur in a young man’s game, there’s young promoters out there.
“Frank Warren needs to leave the promotion now to his kids.
“His son George is a good promoter, he should just let George promote.
“Frank Warren, you need to retire and go hang out with your grandkids.
“The boxing game is not yours anymore, so don’t say my name anymore.”
